Hey !

I got an Ethernet ADSL Modem/routher and i use a shortcut to a dialup connection to connect to the internet where i login to my ISP.

Is there anyway to make this process automatic ?

If you have all your info saved, such as number, username and password, put the shortcut in your startup folder.

This folder is located at c:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

If you put the same shortcut in there, that you double-click to launch yourself, that should run when your computer boots or you login :)

Or you could log into the router and enter your username and password into it, so that it's always connected. Don't have to worry about setting up any connections through Windows this way.

Default ip for most home router's is 192.168.1.1 but that could be different.

^Just as an FYI - some local DSL companies make you authenticate twice. Through the router and local PC.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
